Detailed description

this project involved the construction of a flat two bedroom house for a cancer-stricken mother of Chaguanas, Trinidad. There were 25-30 persons present and they all had different duties to perform. There was a Rotarian from Rotary Club of Ferndale, California, USA with her two daughters. There were also a number of high school students who worked and lived in California. In addition, there were representatives from Habitat for Humanity, Rotarians from other Rotary clubs and skilled workers. The structure of the house was completed, the roof was up, windows were installed and room division was taking place. As non-skilled workers we were involved in the outside removal of clumps of grass, landscaping, spreading wheelbarrows of sand and compact with hands, feet and wooden compactors. At the luncheon break there was the exchange of Rotary flags among the Rotary clubs. It was great fellowship while serious work was being done.
